Wellbeing Services

A professional service giving advice, support and guidance is readily available for JC students, staff and parents/guardians.

These services embrace the wellbeing of the individual holistically to ensure that the College lives up to its Mission Statement. Our Counselling Service offers psychological support. Our Advisory Services offer guidance towards lifetime achievements. Our Youth Worker offers opportunities for social growth and interactions. Our Chaplain offers spiritual guidance and healing. Our Sport & Leisure Unit offers opportunities for physical activities and a healthier approach to life. 

The various services within the Wellbeing Services operate in close liaison with each other, and with the Student Services Office.

The Chaplaincy at Junior College embraces the charisma of enabling all those who come in contact with it to reflect on their uniqueness and how God’s presence in their life makes them more wholesome.

The Chaplaincy offers daily Mass at the College chapel at 07:30 and at 12:15 respectively, daily adoration between 12:30 and 13:30, pastoral counselling and spiritual direction.

The Chaplain’s office may be found next to the foyer, while the chapel is close to the Pjazza, with an adjoining socialising area, both of which are open during College hours. 

We're located in Room C016.
